Weekend Food Choices Week 39: Comfort Food Always Hits the Spot
When we eat out, Filipino restaurants don’t really find itself at the top of our choice list but out of curiosity, we decided to try Mesa
On our table:
Diwal Baked in Garlic and Butter
Diwal, according to an article in Inquirer’s Lifestyle section, is a rare shellfish that’s hardly found in Manila and can cost as much as Php300 per kilo. As hubby and i have never tasted diwal before, we were eager to taste these large clams.
Crispy Boneless Pata
I know they said boneless right (?!) but our dish had pata bones on the side of the meat. I was about to comment to our server but one bite of the tender meat enveloped in crunchy deep fried skin banished my concerns.
When we left our mesa (table), the smiles on our faces showed our satisfaction. We were happy with the friendly and efficient service and the dishes we ordered were definitely a hit. It was a wonderful lunch out with hubby!
On a side note, i was feeling a bit depressed in the middle of the long weekend because i couldn’t find an item i wanted to buy when we passed Bayo and saw this
Remember all the enviro bags with Amorsolo paintings i collected a couple of years back? This will definitely be a nice addition to the collection *wink*
What a nice weekend it turned out to be!
